Commentary by Anton Tabuena:
ONE Fighting Championship's 12th event was hosted today in Malaysia, and it showed some interesting action from a few prospects in the region. In the main event, Yusup Saadulaev picked up another quality win in the promotion by edging Adriano Moraes by Decision. Co-headlining the card was decorated BJJ Blackbelt and Evolve MMA's new pick up Leandro Ataides showcasing his striking skills, and winning by a knockout over Bryan Rafiq.
The fight that stole the night was definitely Peter Davis securing a come from behind submission win over Alaa Mazloum. In trouble after getting dropped early, Davis was able to make things very entertaining as the Actor turned fighter came back to secure a rear naked choke in the second round.
Early on the main card, AJ Lias Mansor won the Malaysian Featherweight Tournament by defeating Melvin Yeoh. Following the fight he made a huge gesture by announcing that he's donating his win bonus to the Typhoon victims in the Philippines.
